Great engineering, beautitful aesthetic- uncomfortable to wear.
on November 9, 2014
I have been searching for a Bulova piece that uses their state of the art precisionist movement. I am amateur watch buyer and still learning the nuisances. I was super stoked about this watch. The design is perfect. It is even more stunning in person. What I didn't anticipate is the 18mm depth. I can't wear this with long sleeve dress shirts, not comfortably atleast. I guess I have smaller wrists because it sits uncomfortably on my wrist bone. Enough to the point I could notice a pain in my wrist the following day.
I love the watch. I love the Bulova story, and the engineering behind the movement. But the bottom line for me is, it is just uncomfortable to wear. I want to see about getting a new leather band to replace the rubber one. Black link would look killer on this watch. That said however, with the rubber band, it is uncomfortable. Enough to the point I am looking for alternative that Bulova offers that I can wear with jackets, and work shirts. This is not a watch you can wear going to sleep and forget you're wearing it.
Best thing that pops in my head thinking about this: my Dad picked it up and asked me why I have a 10lb watch.
